Look ahead of the whimsy in this new Special Issue of the Proceedings of The Royal Society of Queensland. There are 26 serious papers – from pastoralists, scientists and policy specialists knowledgeable about the native pastures of Queensland’s inland. These are Short Communications and Opinion Pieces, capturing insights on a wide range of issues at a time when financial and environmental distress suggests that ‘business as usual’ is not an adequate strategy for this three-quarters of the State’s land area.

The Special Issue is now published and available online free of charge under Creative Commons.

The papers derive from the July 2019 Rangelands Policy Dialogue – see Rural Policy Initiative web pages. A new webpage www.rangelandsqld.org.au accommodates materials after September 2020.
